Camp Glenorchy officially opens - and it has a message

The first-ever guest accommodation designed according to the Living Building Challenge, a sustainable building standard, has opened its doors in the South Island – the highly anticipated Camp Glenorchy. 

The new property welcomes overnight groups seeking an inspiring natural setting for meetings, retreats, workshops, classes, weddings and family gatherings, with Queenstown only a 40-minute drive away. 

‘Camp Glenorchy aims to educate, inspire and delight guests by showcasing some of the most innovative and energy-efficient products in the world,’ says owner Paul Brainerd.

‘One example is our commitment to achieving *Net Zero energy use. Our large solar garden, smart lighting, energy-efficient building designs and highly-efficient heat systems reduce energy demand while creating a comfortable and enjoyable experience for our guests.’

For meeting purposes, The Humboldt Room is available with views of the Humboldt Mountains as well as Mount Alfred and the Earnslaw Glacier and offers an AV system, free wifi and a configurable layout for a wide variety of uses.

There are a range of accommodation options including cabins and bunkhouses, and there is dedicated gathering spaces for guests in the artist-designed Scheelite Campfire Shelter and Homestead Building with shared kitchen, dining, relaxing and meeting spaces.
